november.


I love those few warmer days after the first decent cold snap each year. The sun comes back out, illuminating all of the glorious fall color remaining, and we run outside, looking behind us, as though we are on borrowed time. It doesn't usually last long, but it is enough.


I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine by staying in the house. So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air.
-- Nathaniel Hawthorne

November is here!

Oh, what lovely colors! It's still hot here and will be for awhile longer. We will need to head to the mountains to see colors that so many have right in their back yard!
